The Valley has morphed from pastoral agricultural center to booming mid-century suburbia to the metropolis that almost seceded from Los Angeles in 2002. The artifacts assembled by Tommy Gelinas at the Valley Relics Museum span these eras and include vintage memorabilia from bygone businesses, a Cadillac customized by rhinestone cowboy designer Nudie Cohn and a fleet of BMX bikes that were ubiquitous during the mall-centric ’80s. There’s a sentimental significance to these items that’s evident when you make the pilgrimage to this Van Nuys hangar.
